“Ms. Yerushalmy’s work melds daring ideas with lush movement that makes space for nuance and detail.”
—The New York Times
Raised in Galilee, Israel and based in New York, choreographer Netta Yerushalmy has worked with dance companies including Doug Varone and Dancers and the Metropolitan Opera Ballet. At Wesleyan, the Connecticut premiere of her Paramodernities (2018) will feature a series of four dance-experiments, deconstructing landmark dances by Vaslav Nijinksky, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, and Alvin Ailey; performed alongside texts by scholars and writers who place these iconic works within a historical context.
